    Add an image to a post

    So, you want to add a layout to a post? You can do this two different ways, choose whatever works best for you:

    First let me start by saying that every member has their own layout gallery. Just click the gallery button at the top of the page and it will take you to the layout galleries. You can upload layouts to share with others and they will all be placed in a folder listed under your name. [Learn how to add into the gallery]

    First Way to add a photo into a post.

    When you are typing the post, scroll down and find the "attach files" section. Click the button that says "manage attachments".

    When the window pops up, simply find the photo on your computer that you would like to add, click "upload" and then when done, scroll down in that window and click the "close this window" button.

    This will stick a thumbnail of the photo into your post, that when clicked, will take the member to a full sized photo.

    Second way to add a photo into a post.

    If you have a photo in your gallery that you would like to add into a post, just find that photo in your gallery and select the appropriate link method to get the code to add that photo into your post. when you hit submit, the thumbnail photo will show in your post and when they click on the thumbnail photo, they will be taken to that photo in your gallery.

    I think it is set to something like 100 kb. I know my camera takes photos that are about 3 megs each, but that would be way too high to set the uploads to that level. I have seen some sites that don't allow uploads higher than 50 kb, so I think 100 kb through 150 kb would probably be more than enough for someone.

    I usually go to resize2mail.com and click the 25% or 50% resize feature to resize photos if needed.

    I've noticed that when you add an attachment, there is a list of format sizes. If I remember correctly the .jpg is up to 300kb. So I guess that guess work is already taken care of.

    AND I realized that each member has a limit amount of storage on attachments to forum threads. It gets used up fast if you only post to the thread and not go through the gallery. But, it's creating a gallery where "everything" is posted there - not just LO's or cards. Can there be multiple gallery titles? i.e., Layouts - Cards - Altered Items - Misc. ???

    thanks, sam

    you can also upload to the gallery and then right click on the photo and copy the part that says Image properties. Then when you get to the post click on the icon that's a yellow square that has a mountain looking image in it. then when the pop up comes up paste in the link from your photo image properties. This way the thumbnail is big not tiny. I hope that makes sense.

    When I try to upload a photo to the gallery it says I don't have access to that page. What happened? I used to. The page looks different & you upload differently so am I doing something wrong?

    Big K updated the whole site and you may have to sign in, again. Try that and see if it helps. The same if you use the new Chat Room.

    Signing in isn't the problem because the message uses our names. Also, there's no other place to sign in. It's happening to me, too.
